How much did our Kardashev score go up this year (2013)?

Asked by talljasperman (16922 points ) December 26th, 2013

Carl Sagan. Even a fraction would be desirable? What do you see for 2014? Or are we at the bottom in all the scores from the Wikipedia article…

By almost nothing.

At first I thought you were asking about our Kardashian Scale, which I guess means we are doing worse.

@filmfann Lol. Thanks for the link.

We’re still down at Type 0, but it does my heart good to know some wit took the time to produce the parody of it that @filmfann‘s linked to. Personally, I think bragging rights go to increasing energy efficiency rather than how much of the total energy of the Universe a given civilization can squander. On that front, we are actually making slow but real progress.

I knew I was in for a parody the moment I saw your link.

It was even better executed than I anticipated.

Thanks for that.
